doesn't sound like good business.
Pressed to further particulars, Mr.
Hall-Lewis said "under the circum
stances, I prefer not to discuss the re
lations between the County Court and
myself further than to say that Judge
Watson and Commissioner Dement
have nlways been just and reasonable,
candid, courteous, and open and above
board, and there has been no friction
whatever between these gentlemen and
myself throughout my term of ollleo,
As to Commissioner Armstrong, it is
merely n matter of business with him
to oppose mo, because I have always
been to n greater or less extent in his
wny, so to speak. That is wore there

work should fall to him to look after

ployment, f;r th? Commissioners get
$5. p?r day and their mileage travel

quire that the Court shall employ a

sioner lining ited by the Court, is a
good thing, where by trnin'i.g and ox
